Killer API 560 EQ Clone

The Waves API 560 plug-in brings the sound and character of the 1967 classic 10-band graphic EQ to your favorite DAW. Through a painstaking modeling process, Waves was able to capture the precise nature of the 560's filtering nuances and high-headroom performance, providing you with the sound shaping flexibility of the original, along with all of is sonic idiosyncrasies. One of the things Sweetwater Sales Engineers really dig about both the original 560 and this plug-in version is API's Proportional Q, which focuses in on an ever narrowing frequency band as you push the gain of each EQ band. Along with its true-to-spec one-octave frequency band spacing, this gives the API 560 plug-in its delightfully musical character.

Waves API 560 Native Graphic EQ Plug-in Features:
  • Modeled vintage 560 EQ plugin developed in association with API
  • 1-octave frequency band centers provide predictable and musical results
  • 12dB of boost/cut per band lets you pull off precision sound shaping
  • Proportional Q narrows filter frequency band as you boost or cut gain
  • Additional resolution in the critical +/-4dB region provides smooth contouring
  • +28 dBu clip level provides epic headroom to keep your signal clean
Grab the sound of a classic EQ with the Waves API 560 Native plug-in!

THE kick drum eq

Wow. I saw this plugin on sale at Sweetwater and thought it would be nice to have. I did a little research and found most people use it for kick and bass. I currently have two projects where the kick just wasn't happening correctly. I bought this, downloaded it and literally within an hour both projects' kick came out PERFECT with this EQ. Literally magic. So intuitive.
Music background: Intermediate level producer

Very nice

Great for sculpting kicks, snares and bass. A little goes a long way, like all API gear.
